Hi Rob,

I will try first with the binaries before another compile attempt, but the problem is I cannot find them anywhere (biblepayd, biblepay-cli). The wallet download on biblepay.org does not contain them (it only downloads that file with BMSD extension), and the github release page also does not list the executables among assets.

Rob, the softphone is awesome.

I have an Atlanta phone number, so you have to call me so I can say hi.
This is crazy... I love it

I would like to start the sanctuary in the next few days perhaps I will ask for some help.

However my phone number BBP is 0014706047011

Thanks a lot...

Hi Talisman,

Oh sorry, it looks like my last compile only added BMSD into the linux zip, that was a fail.  Ok, I re-released the linux build and now the linux.zip has all the files.

I also added the linux zip here:

Hi Lalex,

Hey, thanks a lot!  That makes it worth programming.
Yeah, I havent had time to call my mom so I don't have much time to call today but thank you for sharing that. 
I did put a hardware phone in my sons room last night and now we can call each other with BBP phone #s!  (I want to make it so you can associate one BBP key per phone extension but thats not released in the UI yet).

However I do think the hardware phone will be ready within 30 days if anyone wants to buy one!

Also, if anyone finds they can't call their favorite country or don't have the correct rates for a certain country, just let me know and we can add that country to our phone system.

cheers

Hi Alex,

Yes sir, still 4,500,001 and the easiest way it to use the EasySanc instructions up in the red sea release.

Why are some Countries more expensive to call than other Countries from my BiblePay Phone?


Some smaller carriers do not have bilateral agreements:

Some carriers with cheaper international consumer rates have sister mobile networks in different european countries which means they are able to move traffic around their own networks in order to optimise their cost. Some carriers that do not have the ability to do this will have an agreement in place with different carriers in respective local markets and pay a fee to terminate international traffic onto other carrier networks. This increased cost will be passed onto the consumer.

Certain carriers may also have bi-lateral agreements in place with different operators to achieve lower cost of termination in certain countries. It is also possible for carriers to leverage high volumes to achieve lower rates based on traffic from their own mobile customers e.g. they may be able to run promotions for certain countries, increase traffic volumes and negotiate lower rates.

Carriers and aggregators focusing on the B2B market:

A few different quality bands are available on the market at different price points. Even the top voice providers have different quality/price brackets depending on the supplier as an example you can expect to see tiers of prices that are reflected by the success level of connecting each call, the audio quality you will experience, the number that the recipient sees and even the duration of rings that the recipient can hear.

Higher quality connections will have less hops in the supply chain and better infrastructure in place to achieve business critical termination.

Hi Akkin,

Good news and less than good news.

The good news is the BBP phone can call the Philippines, the less than good is the rates are about 16 cents per minute.  I posted the reason above this post that some Countries are more expensive.

On to the "how" to call one of the restricted Countries:  By default our softphone (and hardware phone) doesn't allow you to call a country where the rate is greater than .05 cent a minute unless you put in a manual override for the Country in your wallet.

To authorize calling to the Philippines, simply do this:
Click on Phone | Rate Overrides
Add the country code "PH" to your list.

Once this is added, you will be able to call the Philippines.

Hardware phone should be out any hour.

BIBLEPAY HARDWARE PHONE IS WORKING AND READY TO BE PURCHASED




Great news, we can start with the Grandstream GXP-1610 for $35.99.

An affordable, entry level phone with high reviews that is 100% compatible with our phone network.

I've been using my hardware phone as my regular phone now for 45 days, and it has never let me down.  I've received calls and made calls in and out of my area without a problem.
The calls are nice and clear, better than you hear on crackly PSTN phone lines, as good as you hear on digital work phone networks.

To get started, you simply buy one, plug a network cable from the phone into one of your LAN jacks at home (a standard internet jack).
The phone will obtain its own IP address via DHCP.  Then once the IP is displayed you navigate to its web page, and fill in about 5 or so fields (see our wiki page).
Once provisioned it will work immediately and your BBP phone number associated with your softphone will allow inbound calls (and it rings like a normal phone).
Of course you can place any outbound call to any enabled Country (see our Rates list in Unchained) and you will automatically be billed via your softphone (see the billing tab in the softphone).

To provision your phone, you can click Phone | Hardware Phone Settings from Unchained.  This page will show your personalized settings that you can use to provision your own phone.

In the near future, we will add a GUI that allows our users (IE Business use Case) the ability to map a BBP address to an extension.  This will let you control multiple phone numbers and call routing scenarios as well.  Imagine if you own a company and you have 5 customer service reps.  This would allow you to map an incoming call to an available rep.

We also have support for the YeaLink T46G Color IP phone.  Information for that is available upon request.  Its a pricier phone.

To activate a hardware phone simply follow this wiki page:
https://wiki.biblepay.org/Activate_Hardware_Phone

To buy a phone navigate to:
